Details about the arrest, first reported by Comcast SportsNet Northwest, were not immediately released by the Eugene Police Department. Hill entered a not guilty plea to misdemeanor charges of menacing and criminal mischief. His next court appearance is scheduled for Jan. 21.
Oregon coach Mark Helfrich released a statement Monday saying everyone affiliated with the program is held to a high standard of conduct, and expected to represent the university with ''class, pride and integrity.''
Helfrich said the school would wait until the legal process has finished before making a further determination of Hill's status.
Hill played as a backup in 11 games, with 29 tackles overall, including 21 solo. He also broke up four passes and forced a fumble.
